Hello Again

Well it’s been almost a year since I last posted a blog on here. I needed a little bit of a time out to think about what I wanted to blog about and how to move forward in a positive way.

#DDChat on Twitter, which I host, has been my main focus the last year or so. It’s become a great little community now with lots of friendly and familiar Tweeters. We’ve a real variety of people that I am so grateful to speak to every week. We continue to chat every Thursday from 8pm UK/Irish time discussing a variety of topics.

Other than that, I’ve been contributing where I can to a fantastic Facebook group. It’s a dyslexia support group aimed towards people in the UK with the soul purpose of supporting parents with dyslexic kids but also dyslexic adults, like myself. There’s no hidden agenda to it, just supporting others, and has a variety of people in the group, including experts in the field. https://www.facebook.com/groups/DyslexiahelpandsupportUK is the group which I really cannot praise highly enough.

I am going to start writing again to the blog more regularly. Thanks for sticking by the blog! You’re all awesome 🙂

#DDChat – Weekly Twitter Chat [Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Dyscalculia, Dysgraphia]

What is #DDChat?

For almost a year now, I have been hosting a chat on Twitter called #DDChat. It started off as a monthly thing and only discussing dyslexia, but over the months it has developed and become a weekly event where we discuss dyslexia, dyspraxia, dyscalculia and dysgraphia. It’s a very friendly worldwide community of neurodiverse people, experts and support groups.  Read the rest of this entry

#DDChat Expands

#DDChat New

#DDChat has evolved a lot since I first started it in January. I began as a monthly Twitter chat discussing dyslexia. The first hour always consists of topic questions with the second hour open for anything Tweeters want to discuss incase there were any pressing topics they wanted to discuss. After a few months it became clear that a monthly chat was not enough!  Read the rest of this entry
